The Vault (2021) movie has a scene at around 42' in which a laser scanner with a rotating table is used to scan a key in a short time, maybe some minutes:

Scene

No calibration is done whatsoever. The scan quality must be high enough for the replicated key to be useful.

Is it technically possible? Is it exagerated? Is it fiction?

There have been instances where people have replicated a key from a photograph of a key. A multi-minute scan of a key seems like overkill, but that appears to be a very large key so maybe so.

Is it possible? Yes.

Is it exaggerated? Probably much simpler than is portrayed.

Is it fiction? As portrayed, yes. Practically, no.
